When the spine is out of alignment it can cause back pain. This is called a subluxation and what chiropractic adjustment or manipulation does is get things back where they belong. Chiropractic adjustment is not just one treatment; there are over a thousand variations of the procedure. Some of the variations are done by hand and others use instruments. It can be very gentle and suitable for infants and the frail, or it can be vigorous if that is what is needed.
Drop table adjustment is a procedure that is performed on a specially designed segmented table. If you don't care for the popping sound that chiropractic adjustment often produces, this is a good option. When the doctor applies a quick thrust, the table lowers in that area at the same time. It is effective in helping with back pain and many other types of pain as well.
Sciatica is one of the most common lower back conditions. The sciatic nerve gets compressed, and it sends pain shooting over the buttocks and down the legs. Usually, only one leg is involved at a time. It responds well to treatment and with the correct therapeutic exercises at home, you can maintain a pain-free lower back.
Massage therapy is a complementary therapy that can help with back pain and also prepare the back for other treatments. When the back is relaxed, it is more receptive to adjustment. Massage is both therapeutic and relaxing and helps the body and the mind.
